The state will continue to function until it reaches its limit of providing service on that particular day of the week. A caller can make an order for not more than six bottles per day per store; therefore, the curbside pickup will be limited. The PLCB said that the Staff of every store would first make the caller go through the products present in the stores, and after that, payment will be made on the phone.

A MAN DEVELOPED A MOBILE APP TO HELP UNDERPRIVILEGED AUSTIN CITIZENS TO LOCATE THOSE WHO CAN SUPPORT THEM
The COVID-19 Donation Mapping application was created almost a month ago by Piero Preto. It will link persons who could support with others who need aid during the corona virus disaster.
"It asks for your postal code and it informs you all the donors and all the support services in your area out there," said Preto.
"It's really site-driven. We want people to find support quickly.
Pretto is part of the United States Code. He said the company is creating applications for charities and other groups that are trying to support citizens on a very daily basis. He'd built it in fewer than Twenty hours, according to Preto.
The application depends on users to post what they want, or what they need, for help.
"If you only want to make people aware of the need for masks or the role of your company in providing bill assistance, then I think our software is well-equipped to do that," Preto said. "The Facebook group is an outstanding platform for very niche purposes."
Earlier in March, Preto joined the FB group "COVID-19 COMMUNITY ASSIST-AUSTIN, TX". And he saw there that some users are asking for help and others are posting what they are giving so he wanted to put it all in visual graphics.
"A number of individuals are going out now and wanting to reach down there to contribute back to their neighbors and society out there," Preto said. "There are numerous people underprivileged right now."
